The Canadian Veterinary Medical Association (CVMA) has notified the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) of reports of possible toxicity with chicken jerky treats from China.
The recently reported Fanconi syndrome-like symptoms in dogs are similar to those documented in 2007 by the AVMA, also associated with chicken jerky treats made in China.
The AVMA issued an alert (http://atwork.avma.org/2011/06/17/remain-vigilant-for-illness-possibly-linked-to-chicken-jerky-treat-consumption/comment-page-1/#comment-892) to its members, state veterinary medical associations and allied organizations to 'remain vigilant for illness possibly linked to chicken jerky treat consumption.'
